    I have not been fortunate to have been to every state, but every state I have been to has had some beauty, joy, and inspiration for me. I will readily admit there are some I would not be as quick to make as my home, but that may be because I am not as familiar with all the good aspects of them.

    If it wasn't for the winters, I'd be living in North Dakota right now.

    NYC in NY. It's nice to visit...
    A few weeks ago my wife and I drove in with her sister/BIL from NJ. We wanted to see the 911 Memorial. BIL got a good parking spot and we began walking in. Soon we were in the funnel, and I saw the 'no guns/pocketknives' signs...
    I stashed my little Kershaw in my shoe...
    then we rounded the last turn and it's a full on airport magnetron.
    I pulled out the knife and held it up to security, the lady at the gate said ask the cop on the other side for it. I was hoping for an amnesty bag or what not.
    He says "This is illegal in NYC. Are you PD/FIRE/US soldier"? I reply that I'm not. He says he can confiscate it or we can call involve the police. I tell him to enjoy the pocketknife I've carried for a good ten years. Wanted to tell him that back home in Reasonableville I carry a gun, but followed the GT rule and kept my mouth shut.
    We got back to the car (our rental), BIL parked just into a bus zone, the city got us for a $150 parking ticket and a $40 pocketknife. I won't get into the bill at NOBU but my sister in law is never to order dinner again. Ever.

    The entire country could do without any state north of Pennsylvania, and California.

    I used to drive an 18 wheeler and I've been in every state in the union, including Hawaii and Alaska while in the military.

    ALL of New England sucks the big one.

    I have NO use for any of those socialist states and their little fascist kingdoms.

    IL would top my list... and that's mostly because of Chicago. Chicago would be an armpit city even if it had good gun laws.

    Even though I've been there many times, I realized long ago that there is nothing pretty about Florida that isn't man made.

    Texas. I wouldn't say it was awful, but I don't know how anyone who wasn't born and raised there could willingly move there and call it home. It's the land of dirt, and unrelenting heat. Two weeks ago, when I was in Austin, it was 80°, overcast, and nasty. I turned down a pretty good job, because I couldn't leave Oregon for Texas.

    However, when it comes to roads, Texas is incredible. I've been living in the stone age all my life. Texas is serious when it comes to accommodating motor vehicles, and facilitating vital commerce throughout the state.

    Everyone in New England should be forced to relocated to Canada, and then it could be repurposed as a wilderness preserve. New England is beautiful, but the people sure do ruin it.
    And everyone in South Carolina should be required to take English lessons. I have no idea what language people speak there, I just know that I can't understand a word they say.

    I've been all over, when you eliminate mountains or hills as a factor, Florida is da bombdiggity!

    Get off the highway, into the woods, or on one of our "three coast" or countless rivers/creeks. Florida is some beautiful territory.

    BTW- Frog hunting permits come out on March 8th. Ribbit :supergrin:

    I did not enjoy driving through Nebraska or Kansas. Too flat and nothing to see. Did not like Chicago. Too many tolls, parking was way too much and traffic was horrible.

    I worked all over the state of ND at a job I had back in the late '70s. I have to assume you were in the east side, by a sugar beet processing plant. That is a sour smell.

    Kansas isn't so bad. You have to appreciate the wide open prairie. I enjoy a road trip across the great plains once and a while.

    I have traveled through western OK a few times. From Texahoma to Liberal, KS. There is not much there.

    Geographically, there is nothing wrong with IL. It is too bad it is stuck with Chicago.

    I like Wisconsin - great fishing and hunting. Beautiful lakes and rivers.

    Nebraska has great bird hunting and massive white tale.

    I don't know what state you're from ASH, but their school systems must be aweful. :tongueout:

    Texas is mind numbingly ugly (or at least 90% of it is). I spent my first 24yrs in CT, and have been to MA/RI/NH/Vt/NY, but I've never been to Maine. You can't get there from here. :supergrin:

    I didn't enjoy Michigan. The UP got boring for me, because you can only look at trees for so long. It was nice along the Great Lakes.

    I couldn't get out of Detroit fast enough. Four hours was longer than I wanted to be there.
